My 2 star rating is based on 2 things. Firstly: the Russian male speakers voice, which sounds slurred (it is very unclear and sounds as if he has been awake for a week and is desperate to go to sleep); Secondly: The grammer and vocab used here differs from that found both in any beginners text books that I have seen and also the uk version of this course (which I got from my library). It seems unnecessarily complex. My advice is find a copy of uk version (not sure if it is still available). The male Russian speaker is far better and the language more amenable (plus someone told me it was the more usual form used....but as a beginner I cannot confirm this). I'd give the uk version 4 stars. In addition, I would advise backing this method up with a more traditionally styed course for explanations of grammer etc and also with the Pimsleur courses you do not end up with a very wide vocab at the end of hours of repetitive listening....it is thorough but limited. As an addition or alternative I would try Russian Pod 101. This is both fun, informative and uses contemporary Russian.

Great as a supplemental tool for your target language. My Russian coworker says my pronunciation is good and I admit it's due to these programs.

Easy to understand and use. By the end of the first five lessons I am already speaking Russian. And good memory retention.
